One question that helps students critically think (and vote!)

What’s your reasoning?

After critically thinking about their choices, Americans cast their votes today. (We hope!)

There’s a lot of misinformation out there. If students better understand sound arguments and reasoning, they can dissect the logic—or lack thereof—behind the daily barrage of candidates’ speeches, social media posts, videos, and commercials. Such abilities are important today more than ever.

With the right tools supporting your instruction, these skills are learned and refined in the composition classroom.

Hawkes Learning’s English Composition courseware and textbook include lessons on how to be a discerning reader and writer (and voter). Read a free sample from Chapter 5: Reading Critically.
